We are inviting all bereaved to participate worldwide in Vow of Silence Day.
Often used monastically, a vow of silence in this context is to honor our Beloveds who have died, and to hold a space for them within our hearts.
Simply begin your silence at midnight on Sunday, April 28 and continue until 11:59pm. You are welcome to invite others to a day of silence in memory of your beloved one and may share this jpg for anyone to wear should they wish to do so.
Please feel free to share this with anyone you feel may benefit from this experience. And know that around the world, other mourners will be joining you in the silence for our Beloveds.
Please use this link to go and share your stories of silence:
Deep bows to you and your Beloved.
Baby loss, of any sort will always be the hardest on the mother, whether it
is because of a miscarriage or a death. Although all family members go through
grief and trauma, the mother will be the one person who feels the most
troubled. So what happens when the holidays come and you are expected to
celebrate? I have had my share of despair in such a situation and I know what
it feels like to be gathered by so many people when what you really want to do
is to be alone. But in my case, I found out that I wasn’t the only one who was
facing something like this and that there are so many others who also knew my
From talking to other mothers that have experienced the loss some
suggestions I have gathered to cope with the holidays are:
- If your loss is recent and you if haven’t had the chance to recover, you
need to politely decline any invitation that you receive. It is not necessary
that you go to gatherings just because family or friends think you should.
- If you do decide to go and interact but then start feeling overwhelmed,
then take time for yourself and search for a place where you can just sit and
be alone. If however you find kids running around or pregnant women and just
cannot bear it then know it is okay to leave the party.
- Remember there are always some people who never understand what you are
going through. If you are in a
circumstance where people say hurtful things then you must decide which
strategy you need to choose with them. For example is it worth having a polite
but firm talk with them? Or should you just walk away? How you deal with this
depends on you entirely.
- Lastly, you must keep in mind not to feel guilty. If you are at a party
and are enjoying yourself it is fine. Your baby would rather see you happy and
enjoying the holidays so use this time to be thankful for the time you shared
with your little angel.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!
Today many of us mothers will be remind that our child(ren) aren’t here to celebrate this special day with us. However, our angels are forever in our hearts and memories and time can not take that from us.
So today rejoice and be happy. And if tears come do not let those be tears of sadness but tears of happiness because our little angels are gather together in heaven. Today they look down and tell their friends why they are proud to call you their mother.
So today be proud to be their mothers.
Happy Mother’s Day.
